Its True, 4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the Soul.

Seven weeks ago I was recovering in a hospital bed after a 12 hour
surgery for Skin Cancer to my left cheek.It was a total success,
I'm strong again and 2 thumbs up from the doctors.Todays technology is awesome. Much of my recovery time was spent thinking about riding my 85 LTD again,that was strong motivation to do what it takes to heal up quickly.The 12 inch incision in my leg used for the skin graft healed beautifully with 100% leg strength again,very important for balancing a full dresser.

My first ride again will likely make this tough old boy choke up a bit and say "I'm Back" ,I love the wind in my face, did I mention I just turned 65 and Riding has been a lifelong experience :)

Ride safe,
Robert

Glad to hear your surgery went well, and glad to hear you are back out there on the Wing. Your right about riding. Folks who have never experienced a motorcycle don't know what they are missing. Love to ride also, ride safe..

Life can throw us some nasty curves and we can't do much about what is thrown our way but we can control how we deal with it. Your positive attitude is a great example for the rest of us. Enjoy your ride.

A positive attitude will make recovery much easier. These profound words are from the experience of 6 heart attacks!
Ride safe & enjoy life!
